Bug Description

Messaging review as of 19/08/2013

List view:

- Missing date header (which should follow a format chosen in the settings) if not "today" or "yesterday"

Thread view:

- Bubble should have drop shadow, rather than internal shadow
- Date should be in the format chosen in the settings as above. I would prefer to display zeros, i.e. 08/06/2013 rather than 8/6/13
- Tapping on the thread should dismiss the keyboard

Compose view:

- Missing "To:"
- Missing "Enter Number"
- Missing "Add contact" icon
- Inset rounded rectangle is not part of the design
- Missing search/speed dial functionality
- Missing confirmation that message has sent – do you need an animation pattern for this?

Returning to thread view, after sending a message:

- Time and message are missing from previously sent message

Matt, we need updated assets for the bubbles (with the drop shadow). Can you provide this?

So, all the items on the list will be taken care of with two exceptions:
- confirmation of sent messages: the backend code for this is going to be implemented after 13.10
- drop shadows on bubbles: this is pending on a new UbuntuShape implementation that supports both drop shadows and arrow indicators.

Pulled down the latest --pending release and saw the new changes. They look good but I have two nitpicks in the Main View

 - The message text was reduced to 20% opacity; this makes it a little difficult to read
 - Instead of wrapping around to a second line, text message previews flow all the way to the right and write over the Delete button, which is a little jarring
